V440 hardware disk mirroring

Subject: Summary: V440 hardware disk mirroring

Many thanks to every one who replied,
the builtin LSI controller does not show any progress indicator
when syncing disks, ie '% complete'; there is no extra arg to the
'raidctl' cmd that will cause a progress indicator to be displayed.

only two of the four internal disks can be mirrored with the
builtin hardware RAID controller, the other 2 internal disks
can be mirrored with SVM.
